A Proposed Participatory Governance Structure for the Division of Continuing Education and Community Services at Bristol Community College.
Desmarais, Armand; Wiggins, E. Foster
In order to design a participatory governance structure of the Division of Continuing Education and Community Services at Bristol Community College (BCC), the authors surveyed 85 randomly selected community colleges throughout the country; 14 institutions responded. Only two institutions, both in Colorado, seemed to have exemplary shared-authority structures; both structures represented the entire college, not just the evening division. In addition to this survey, an opinion survey of Division students, faculty, and administration at BCC was conducted. A committee of representatives of these three groups was established to consider possible structures, the Dean of the Division was asked for his opinions, the related literature was reviewed, and the current governance structure was analyzed. As a result of all these inputs, the authors recommended the formation of a new structure, called the All Continuing Education and Community Services Senate. The Senate will be composed of four Division students, four Division faculty, four Division administrators, and two members of the Division classified staff, all of whom will be elected to one-year terms of office. It will meet at least once each month and will make recommendations to the Dean of the Division on matters concerning Division policies and procedures. (DC)
